Its really quite ridiculous. They havent updated the status of the new album since the end of year recap on the DT website. And all they said in it was that there going to focus on the songwriting for the album. But i suppose we should grant DT some time. After all,they've only taken longer than 2 years to complete an album in there entire career. The time between Damage Done and Character was three years. In addition to that fact,they havent had a new member since Haven. So i'm sure theres some writing adjustments that need to be made in order to accomaidate Daniel to the band. I just hope they give us an update soon.Theres plenty of impatience in my conscience for both DT and Sonata Arctica.
